Food Friday: We All Scream for Ice Cream







Let me break it down for you, I have a minor (ok, major) obsession with ice cream. Now I am not a junk food junkie, but I can eat ice cream anytime, anyplace. I am not quite sure when my fascination with ice cream began. Maybe it was watching my grandma order banana splits for lunch, or the 59-cent cone my mom let me get after every swim lesson. Of all the ice cream on the planet, I am in love with Thrifty ice cream (now found in Rite Aid). I know it seems weird to buy ice cream at a place that also sells Neosporin and Band-Aides, but it doesn't matter to me. There is something about Thrifty ice cream that is unbeatable. No one, and and I mean no one, even comes close to topping its amazing taste. When it comes to flavors, I don't discriminate. I will have a little of everything, from butter pecan to chocolate chip and from rocky road to coconut pineapple. But at the end of the day, I am super happy with a bowl full of the basics like chocolate and strawberry. Okay, I know what I am having for dinner tonight.

  1. I think you should get out your wedding dress and have your picture with an ice cream cone in your hand! I have been thinking of your Trash the Dress and I think you should email my some of your wedding pics and I will create something fun on photoshop, so you dont harm your beautiful dress!

  7. After reading this post, I, too, am craving icecream - It's been almost a thousand years since I last enjoyed icecream - The right mood is required for this delicious treat, though.
    Happy weekend, sweetie, and enjoy!;-)

  10. Yes, Thrifty ice cream is the absolute best! I remember when it was $0.25 for a single (does that show how old I am?). I have a serious ice cream obsession as well. My other favorites are Ben & Jerry's and Cold Stone. Great post, Marcie! Have a nice weekend!

  12. You know, it took me half a life time to get into ice cream.. I have always been a 'food person' and not a 'sweets or treat person'.. but then I fell pregnant with my daughter and she somehow altered my DNA.. During the pregnancy she made me crave things I would have never really longed for, ice cream included.. Now I too am an ice cream lover. Strange how it happens.

    Hope you are having many this weekend and that the sun is shining in California (..it's supposed to always be sunny there right.. :)

  20. Aww isn't Georgia the sweetest? I diddo her comment and love to see what Georgia can come up with, with your wedding pictures.

    But getting back to the ice cream part, I am with ya sistah. Rite Aid ice cream is the best, my go-to choice. My usual suspects are Mr. Chocoloate with good ol' Pistachio Nut.

    Hope you had some delicious cravings this past weekend.
